on behalf of Don Knepper
 CEDAR RAPIDS, IA
The Hunter family was in a terrible car accident Sunday, December 18th. Their SUV was hit by a semi on Highway 151 south of Anamosa, Iowa. Brandon and his wife, Molli, and their 13 year old daughter, Hope, are at the UofI hospital in Iowa City, all 3 have several severe injuries. Unfortunately, the two youngest children, Diamond and Donald, did not survive the accident. The family will need a lot of support in the upcoming days, weeks and months. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Not only is the loss of 2 children an unimaginable tragedy, the bills will be exorbinant. Please donate to the family to lessen the burden while they try to deal with their loss.

I wanted to take a brief moment to update everyone regarding the Hunter family. Brandon and Hope may be released from the hospital as early as today. They both have injuries that will take some time to heal but they are getting better. Molli has some severe facial injuries. She had her first of many surgeries on Tuesday. And her next one is scheduled in January. Molli will have a long road to recovery. The funerals for Donald and Diamond are still on hold at this point.

I cannot begin to properly express the amazing outpouring of support from this community and beyond. From the Union Brothers and Sisters to total strangers... The donations, phone calls, texts, Facebook messages have all been heard and appreciated. I know I can speak on behalf of the family when I say we will not ever be able to thank you all enough for this level of support.

I am praying for you all. I know your pain, your sorrow, your loss. My family had a car accident Nov. 3rd and 2 of mygrandchildren died. My granddaughter has a tramatic brain injury. My daughter has broken bones, my other granddaughter has milder injuries. I wish I could be there, to hold your hands, to tell you so many people are praying for you, that you will know love and support beyond your imagination. I wish we could turn back time and our beloved children would be here.

I was at the scene of the accident and wanted nothing more than for all of them to all make it. I don't know if you remember me Molli, but I will never forget your beautiful family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
